There is quite a bit of talk in today's media about "Toxic Masculinity."  But what is that?  I tried to find out a precise and universal definition but was unable to do so.  Here are a few of the definitions: (I tried to put what the sources say in bold, and my responses in regular type)

https://www.dictionary.com/browse/toxic-masculinity

Toxic masculinity


noun

a cultural concept of manliness that glorifies stoicism, strength, virility, and dominance, and that is socially maladaptive or harmful to mental health: Men and women both suffer when toxic masculinity perpetuates expectations that are restrictive and traumatizing.
 
 
Toxic masculinity is a narrow and repressive description of manhood, designating manhood as defined by violence, sex, status and aggression. It’s the cultural ideal of manliness, where strength is everything while emotions are a weakness; where sex and brutality are yardsticks by which men are measured, while supposedly “feminine” traits—which can range from emotional vulnerability to simply not being hypersexual—are the means by which your status as “man” can be taken away.
 

What is toxic masculinity?

Toxic masculinity refers to harmful behaviour and attitudes commonly associated with some men, such as the need to repress emotions during stressful situations, and to act in an aggressively dominant way.

 

These are just some of the definitions.  If you'll notice, they vary considerably.  Two of them connect violence to masculinity while the other simply says "harmful behaviors."  The immediate question that I have is this, from what in particular are these authors using as a primary source, or sources, for their definitions? To put it another way, where can I go to verify objectively that these definitions are accurate on my own? A concept in order to be valid, needs to be falsifiable.  That is it can be proven false by conducting research directly related to the concept itself.  This is at the core of scientific research and the social sciences as well.  If I say humans have three legs, that's falsifiable.  I can observe humans directly and see how many legs they have.  Others can independently survey this themselves.  Do you see how this works?

But what are we to test with "Toxic Masculinity"?  Who comprised the test group where this found? How does that group compare to others outside the test group? Try as I may I couldn't find ANY original research that has stood up to he peer review process.  The best thing I could find is the following:

 

https://www.apa.org/about/policy/boys-men-practice-guidelines.pdf

 

That is a guide by the American Psychological Association that gives guidelines for working with boys and men.  I will quote some of the things from it.

From the introduction:

Boys and men are diverse with respect to their race, ethnicity, culture, migration status, age, socioeconomic status, ability status, sexual orientation, gender identity, and religious affiliation. Each of these social identities contributes uniquely and in intersecting ways to shape how men experience and perform their masculinities, which in turn contribute to relational, psychological, and behavioral health outcomes in both positive and negative ways (e.g., Arellano-Morales, Liang, Ruiz, & Rios-Oropeza, 2015; Kiselica, Benton-Wright, & Englar-Carlson, 2016). Although boys and men, as a group, tend to hold privilege and power based on gender, they also demonstrate disproportionate rates of receiving harsh discipline (e.g., suspension and expulsion), academic challenges (e.g., dropping out of high school, particularly among African American and Latino boys), mental health issues (e.g., completed suicide), physical health problems (e.g., cardiovascular problems), public health concerns (e.g., violence, substance abuse, incarceration, and early mortality), and a wide variety of other quality-of-life issues (e.g., relational problems, family well-being; for comprehensive reviews, see Levant & Richmond, 2007; Moore & Stuart, 2005; O’Neil, 2015). Additionally, many men do not seek help when they need it, and many report distinctive barriers to receiving gender-sensitive psychological treatment (Mahalik, Good, Tager, Levant, & Mackowiak, 2012).

Notice how it states outright that there is diversity among "masculinities"?  It's literally in the first sentence.  So why does the media, and the definitions I provided, treat men and boys as a monolithic group? To do so is sexist.  We're not allowed to do this with women, Blacks, gays, Muslims, and any other group that you can name.... except men.  Guess what? Using the term "Toxic Masculinity" stereotypes men, and in a negative way.

Further the manual says:

MASCULINITY IDEOLOGY Masculinity ideology is a set of descriptive, prescriptive, and proscriptive of cognitions about boys and men (Levant & Richmond, 2007; Pleck, Sonenstein, & Ku, 1994). Although there are differences in masculinity ideologies, there is a particular constellation
APA | Guidelines for Psychological Practice with Boys and Men 3
of standards that have held sway over large segments of the population, including: anti-femininity, achievement, eschewal of the appearance of weakness, and adventure, risk, and violence. These have been collectively referred to as traditional masculinity ideology (Levant & Richmond, 2007). Additionally, acknowledging the plurality of and social constructionist perspective of masculinity, the term masculinities is being used with increasing frequency (Wong & Wester, 2016).

 

Notice one study says that "traditional masculinity" includes anti-femininity, and eschewing weakness.  I'd like to point out that  feminists describe women as "Strong and Independent." Isn't that ironic? Strength, as opposed to weakness, is championed.  But it's not toxic when feminists use that.  By the way, it also say risk, adventure, and violence.  Those are all abstract terms.  What specifically is meant by those terms?  The book never really says.  Seriously.  Football can be described as a violent sport for example.  Does encouraging boys to play football contribute to this concept of "Toxic Masculinity"? Possibly.  The question that naturally follows is what do the authors of the study say. That would be Levant & Richmond, 2007.

How did Lavant get his information? Easy, he devised a questionnaire.  Here are the questions:

https://akron.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_2oBbBFGeFFAETOJ?Q_JFE=qdg

I took said test and got this result:

Your score on the General Traditional Masculinity Ideology scale is 100. You scored at or above the midpoint on this scale.  You tend to believe that men should conform to the traditional Western masculine norms, which include the avoidance of all things feminine, having negative attitudes toward sexual minorities, striving for self-reliance through mechanical skills, being tough and dominant, placing great importance on sex, and restricting the expression of emotions. The higher your score, up to 147, the more you believe this. You may endorse some of these norms more than others, and to see if you do, please check the interpretation of your scores on each subscale. 

 

I'd like to point out that NOWHERE did I say men need to be dominate.  Nowhere did I place great importance on sex.  Also, it's true that there are appropriate times and places to show emotion.  Say I'm on trial for capital murder which carries the death penalty here in Texas.  It would be HIGHLY inappropriate for my attorney or attorneys to start crying because their dog died, wife yelled at them, or some other such thing.  They can go home and do that.  Makes sense right? But these kinds of subtleties are beyond this researcher who has clear biases.  Also, it says that I have negative attitudes towards sexual minorities.  He means gays.  Again this is a misrepresentation.  I have nothing against gays themselves, I do however find homosexual conduct to disgusting.  But that makes me toxic! I'm not fond of strait people kissing in public, that doesn't mean I have negative views about heterosexuals.  The questionnaire asked if I supported gay marriage, I don't.  I will never support that.  But, my support for traditional marriage is Toxic.  Are you starting to see a pattern here?

 

Here's more:

Your score on the Avoidance of Femininity scale is 17. You scored at or above the midpoint on this scale Western cultural norms tend to demand that men sharply avoid anything that even hints of femininity. Your score represents an endorsement of this cultural norm. For example, you tend to think that men should prefer to watch football games instead of soap operas, and that they should prefer to watch action movies instead of reading romantic novels. Further, you think that boys should prefer to play with trucks rather than dolls. The higher your score, up to 21, the more you believe this.

See? I'm toxic because of the above.  This is sheer insanity.  By the way I love femininity, what do you think women are? FEMININE!

Even more:

Your score on the Negativity towards Sexual Minorities scale is 18. You scored at or above the midpoint on this scale Western cultural norms demand that men should strongly affirm their heterosexuality by rejecting any deviations from it. Your score represents an endorsement of this cultural norm. Thus you tend to view sexual minorities, such as gay, bisexual, and transgender men, negatively. For example you tend to believe that gay men should not kiss in public nor should they marry and you tend to think that all homosexual bars should be closed down. The higher your score, up to 21, the more you view such men negatively.

I've discussed this earlier.  By the way the survey didn't say anything about transgender anything.  So this response is equivocation.  I NEVER said that I want to close down gay bars.  I don't endorse that behavior, nor do I want to see it.  I reject gay behavior because it's demonstrably risky, and a violation of natural law.

 

Even more:

 

Your score on the Self-Reliance through Mechanical Skills scale is 15. You scored at or above the midpoint on this scale Western cultural norms require that men be self-reliant by using their mechanical skills. Your score represents an endorsement this cultural norm. Hence, you tend to think that men should have home improvement skills, be able to fix most things around the house, and should know how to repair his car if it should break down. The higher your score, up to 21, the more you believe this.

 

I endorse the above for women too.  But the questionnaire didn't ask about that. Isn't that weird?

 

Even more:

Your score on the Toughness scale is 15. You scored at or above the midpoint on this scale Western cultural norms demand that men be physically tough, aggressive, and willing to take risks. Your score represents an endorsement of this cultural norm. Thus, you tend to believe that it is important for a man to take risks even if he might get hurt, that when the going gets tough men should get tough, and that a young man should try to be physically tough even if he’s not big. The higher your score, up to 21, the more you believe this.

Yep, life is tough and the world is unforgiving. A man has to be able to handle himself.  That's a fact.  Women can benefit from this too.  By the way I NEVER said for men to be aggressive.  Are you seeing a pattern? This survey is assuming things about my responses that just aren't there.

Even more:

Your score on the Dominance scale is 15. You scored at or above the midpoint on this scale Western cultural norms require that men always be the leader or boss. Your score represents an endorsement of this cultural norm. Thus, you tend to believe that the President of the US should always be a man, that men should be the leader in any group, and that a man should always be the boss. The higher your score, up to 21, the more you believe this.

First of all, why is this word "dominance" being used? Notice the line that start with "thus." I NEVER said "always" to any of those things.

Here we go:

Your score on the Importance of Sex scale is 12. You scored at or above the midpoint on this scale Western cultural norms require that men make sex an overriding priority. Your score represents an endorsement of this cultural norm.  Thus, you tend to agree with the ideas that men should always like to have sex, should not turn down sex, and should always be ready for sex. The higher your score, up to 21, the more you believe this.

I never actually endorsed any of that.

 

There was one more screen but I stopped.  I think that you get the point.  Leading questions followed by highly questionable convulsions.  But this "study" is the genesis of Toxic Masculinity.  DO ANY OF YOU SEE A PROBLEM YET?

Toxic Masculinity is "Posting hundreds of cats on a forum that does not allow women".

LOL.

Just don't do that in this thread.  This was actually researched.  The survey I profiled is literally the only piece of "evidence" that feminists and the media use to prop up their "toxic" masculinity claim.  It's just that flimsy.

This is a great example of why I consider Psychology & the mental health industry in general to be a pseudoscience. There are no quantifiable tests to determine who is & who is not mentally ill.

The diagnostic standards manuals are based on peer review & group consensus, in other words the criteria is subjective.

For instance the World Health Organization recently declassified gender dysphoria as a mental illness, yet added gaming addiction & work burnout. Was there some sort of scientific breakthrough? No, a committee voted on the decision & a majority won.

http://archive.fo/zWUy9

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/world-health-organization-removes-gender-dysphoria-from-list-of-mental-illnesses/

 

Having said all of that I do believe mental illness is real, but I do not trust the methods used to diagnose or treat it.

Toxic Masculinity is a perfect example of why, such labels are far more damaging than the so-called symptoms.

The whole concept is disgusting, like some society wide gaslighting.

What it boils down to is that modern society is toxic for men, we are simply being blamed for it, which is really nothing new, it's merely another vantage point from which to strike us.

I reckon someone will need to add another column to the list of shaming tactics. I propose Man-Phobic. Then again, this nearly fits in every category, maybe this is the Voltron of shaming tactics, all rolled into one.

I was just adding one example of how a group of feminist females gets mad at silly things I do... And then I start to enjoy doing exactly this because they get mad... And do it a 1000 times over. And then I perfection that process, so they get even more mad.

Cunts always made the first mistake by nitpicking on anything and everything, no matter how tiny the incident.

Cunts always turned me into their worst nightmare.

"Toxic Masculinity" is another word for "not taking shit from women" and retaliating.

I love blowing their fuses. They got mad over 5 cat pics, so I gave them 3000.

Cunts were the ones who invented all of these insulting "diagnoses" for children they couldn't handle.

To keep down and suppress children with more mental capabilities than they themselves had or will ever have.

I came into the world as a fast learner and was a quiet child that would occupy himself without breaking things and messing up the place.

I built my first electrical circuits at around age 3 and learned to read at about age 4 to 5.

And I started to put my knowledge to work to fix stuff in the household, silently looking down on annoying kids that break shit for no reason and scream all day...

Outside of the family, people did not believe my actual age... And they showered me with books (still have them), gifts and: Things to fix... To see if I could do it.

Father was proud but did not care for me at all. So I wasn't the spoiled "daddy's boy" my sister would always try to make me out to be.

 

I was never arrogant and since no real values came my way (only the family fighting 24/7/365) I copied my behavior from pleasant adults. They always wondered why "that kid" is not of the same make as the rest of the "talk of the town" family.

But:

All of the cunts around me and all of those that were involved in my "upbringing" gave me shit, called me names, tried to pin every and any psychological defect on me that they possibly could.

It went as far as the teacher cunts inciting the class to beat me up, only to find themselves at the receiving end of my inner disgust for them (and their gender)...

They ordered me to countless psychological "appointments" and they all came back with no diagnosis... But, in 1975, the state ordered shrink made a test and only had one thing to say: He (me) should skip 1 to 2 years in school, school BORES the hell out of him.

I still see myself sitting at the desk in his practice drawing stupid crap that "only children do"... (I was 8)

But in all of these years, there wasn't a negative or devaluing thing I was not called. Up and down the ladder of the book of "syndromes" and "disorders" while all I can see was that the constant attacks on me - instead of leaving me alone - was the greatest disorder in my life.

All I observed around me was: The ever-sad-never-happy cunts and their trainwrecked lives were the real disorder. And they hated my inner peace and strength.

I had so many "success experiences" that there was no need to beat up other pupils in the schoolyard (to prove how strong I am, LOL)... But I often protected those who were threatened or attacked...

And then I was called names again. "Coward..." - Until they saw me fight... "Future terrorist" - for being effective in creating fear and "making" lasting peace...

"Socially deranged" and "dangerous" when I attracted and built a following - against bullies and unjust teachers...

Everything about me was declared "toxic" and "deranged"... Until I became proud of being called names by dumb women who can't even fix a nail in the wall. (In spite of their "paper on the wall")

 

Have you ever noticed that the classification of male=smart children into "psychological defects and syndromes" has exploded in the 1970's - right after the cunts took over the education system?

Boys were systematically demonized and classified as defective. The more "man" or "boy" you were, the more these cunts mind-fucked with you.

The more interests and hobbies you had - that the cunts were too stupid to understand - the more you were called out as a lunatic ("He is in another orbit"/ "Genius and insanity go well together") and they predicted "he is not going to make it"...

I had YEARS of such shaming around me. At every corner in my life, these cunts tried to get their dumb and mindless hands into my life and tried to destroy my well being with their constant criticism and - way under the belly line - comparative judgment.

Until I began to love pissing them off. It became my goal to show women that they are not my equal and that they must "work on themselves" (their own constant shaming back at them) to even be worthy of my presence and time:

Ignoring girls (they were already infected with feminism in 1980) while reading the latest "Stereo" or "Radio Review" magazine, giving it full attention... 

I began to see girls for what they are: Invasive, dumb, loud, insulting, speaking before thinking, destructive, shallow, lying, unjust, intolerant... (An endless list)

And dangerous when they get old... (As I could see in the cunts that gave me shit for years)

 

The demonizing of boys culminated in in the 1990's, when they were drugged to "stay calm" and behave like disinterested (passive) girls.

That's when I decided that this country will NOT GET KIDS FROM ME!

Never give one of these women (and the system) your child!

I couldn't resist I had to take the questionnaire. It was actually decently worded. I am proud to say I scored the max on avoidance of femininity.  Now, here is where it gets amusing I disapproved all of the anti gay rhetoric yet still got a 9. Maybe that just a assumption that I don't approve of transgenders (I am on the fence). Now self reliance is top score because I believe women and men should be self reliant. I have in fact put it branded on my list of requirements of friends from now on. 

More amusing is toughness is maxed out. Yes I believe me should be tough overall, that is how we have won two World Wars and more than a few minor ones.  Here is the funny catch. I believe if a woman wants to stand as a equal she must do the same.  To quote the test "that when the going gets tough men should get tough". Maybe they should have had a check box to clarify if you desire a woman to have the same traits.

Dominice I got a 9. Mainly cause when it comes to bosses I don't let their sex be a determining factor. I have known good bosses that where both male and female, and bad bosses for that matter. Now does that make me weak? No in other areas my opinion is that the strongest will and do survive.  It only gets funnier when I clicked next and scored a four on the importance of sex. It amusing and scary that this is graded based on my interpretation of equal rights. I said men should be allowed to turn down sex, and  should not always be ready. Amusing that if this was directed towards females they would have hung someone on a cross. 

16 on emotional restrictiveness, guess I'm not a heartless wretch like the ex cunt want to say I am. That saying yes a man or women must know how to turn off on in a high stress environment. I have found that this has actually saved my life on more then one occasion, the one occasion I did not turn off and allowed my rage and sadness to overwhelm me I am still annoyed by it. Cause if I looked at it objectively and acted accordingly I could have spared myself a bad Christmas and a  year of financial difficulty.  

Overall a limited test.

Now here is your daily reminder that its okay to be a white conservative male.

I decided to explore his site a bit. Its amusing that they are strongly looking for sexual minorities. To encourage one group over another is to render you overall study of a culture null and void.  In any study you  must establish a hypothesis, gather evidence, interpret results, and make a conclusion. It may not meet your hypothesis and that is okay.  

If a lot of conservative; masculine males show up in your study then that is how you must conduct your study. It is shameful and unethical to do otherwise. He should have his license and if possible his degree revoked.

Thank you for posting that.  That website and questionnaire is biased as fuck.  Anything that doesn't toe the liberal progressive line is "toxic" to that bozo.  His assumptions are clear.  Yet this is what the ENTIRE "toxic masculinity" deal is based upon.  Think about that.  An entire media hype bullshit thing based on the heavily biased research of this bozo.  Here's the scary part, it took me about ten minutes to find this out.  I'm not kidding.  Now I'm a regular guy who isn't that smart and I broke the code with my laptop as my only tool, what's the media's excuse?

I didn't even  do much digging either. I only found out because it said click here if interested in participating in further research. I myself would happy to participate in such research if it was conducted in a non biased manner.  His study could have shown immense potential even if he added a box saying what about women too? 

As for the media? The best I can say is the media knows but does not care. I have long believed that the great machine is intentionally brainwashing the GDP (general dumb public). If it can make those up on the pecking order more money then damn the rest. Here is a example I recently decided to commit my energies to pursue a remote job and moving more rural. By the next morning I began to see more news articles about higher crime in these areas before I use to see more tech articles.  I don't even have a Facebook or other social media.

The up side here is that the internet provides an avenue for regular people to figure it out.  I did, and the documentation is laid out above.  It couldn't be more clear that this is a biased and bigoted propaganda move in favor of gays and at the expense of men and strait people.

I just took that test...

No need to report the outcome.

The questions are so simple, it is easy to predict what they were intended for.

See? A biased test with leading questions coupled with presumptuous interpretations on the author's part created the whole "toxic masculinity" thing.  Maybe this has been exposed elsewhere online, maybe not.  What I know to be a fact is that this thread makes the information easily assessable and in short time too.  That is invaluable! Everyone, men and women, should read about this survey and look at the guy's website.  He's full of shit and a gay activist.  He's simply telling people that they're wrong because they're not a feminist or okay with gay activism, actually he's calling them "toxic" for not buying into those things.  Fuck him, it's people like him who destroy good things for their own advancement.  Because of him men are under attack across the nation.  Yet he's smiling in the picture on his website.  He had answers in search of a problem, that not only makes him a liar... it makes him downright unethical.

it's supposed to be when guys tell other guys to "man up" and be more masculine.  The peer pressure to be more manly.  guy culture.  however, most people hear that term and just assume it means all men are toxic, the things men like are toxic, etc.

Great find and straight forward, high end OP! The Fata Morgana of "Toxic masculinity" is one of the many examples for the self serving bias as traditionally exhibitied and profited from by the worldwide mental health industry´s ugly heads: the APA and WHO. Guess what, the APA decides on what does or does not constitute as a (new) mental disease by counting raised arms of attendees at their yearly conventions. And guess what else stinks to the high heavens: this voting group of attendees is comprised of "mental health professionals" whose only aptitude to vote on these matters is their membership in the APA.

Now, there is a clear majority of women among these APA members and almost all of them have never in their whole life conducted anything akin to scientific work, whatsoever. They have proven time and again, that they only vote for what they want, instead for what is true, let alone would be helpful for their clients.

The diagnostic standards manuals are based on peer review & group consensus, in other words the criteria is subjective.

For instance the World Health Organization recently declassified gender dysphoria as a mental illness, yet added gaming addiction & work burnout.

Was there some sort of scientific breakthrough? No, a committee voted on the decision & a majority won.

Once you know that, you have awoken to the truth about this whole field of "expertise"! It is a scam, a political tool of control.

They couldn´t define anything in a manner that would hold water, because they still have not the slightest idea, what they are doing. There is still no concept of the human mind they could base anything about. Instead, the whole industry is based upon personal preference, groupthink, greed and hearsay.

These people, whose votes can easily determine the fates of their fellow citizens, are still operating in the dark and ruining countless of lives for nothing but their own advantage in the process!

BOOM!

More than that: these people have been put in charge by your crooked US government and almost all the rest of this mentally ill, spineless, blue pill world to decide upon the mental state of all of humanity! In other words: the depraved and mentally ill, themselves*, that is the intersectional feminist- and blue pill cuck functionaries of the APA and WHO are put in charge to decide who, nowadays, constitutes as "normal" and who ought to be considered as "abnormal", "toxic", "mad", "insane" or "dangerous". These unscientific, baseless and highly biased people are in charge when it comes to the decision what type of behaviors or opinions ought to trigger "red flag laws", for example, while it is a known fact, what and how one-sided their own political affiliations are.

It is a programmed disaster - and we can see it being played out left, right and center to the detriment of order, "real" science, truth and common sense.

RedPill or MGTOW views will be ever more attacked by the mental health industry; there is a political, economical and cultural struggle to outlaw, decimate and pathologize the truth that dries up the well of money for these hypocrite people! Every MGTOW man, who does not fall into depression by being butt raped by his sweet cupcake dragging him before the divorce court and stripping him off his children and hard earned assets is one "customer" lost for the mental health industry. Every MGTOW man who lives on his own, instead of attending "pair therapy" with his sweet cupcake to be - in the worst case - told he is a toxic piece of shit by a biased feminist cunt, who hates "all the masculinities", alike, is a lost donkey that is shitting golden coins for the industry.

 

 

Masculine toxicity? That´s a good one, bitches!

"Can anyone tell me why also my penis burns?"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*it is just another fact, that working in the mental health industry attracts a dispropotionate high percentage of the mentally ill - like virtually no other profession does to my knowledge.

Before I forget, here is something to comfort the toxic femininity which is most likely lurking and reading this forum.

The ideal man according to cunts is a cuck. So the opposite of that is toxic masculinity.

Why is there so much whining about "toxic masculinity" and so much silence about toxic femininity?  It's sort of like telling people to sling mud at a chimpanzee while a huge gorilla tears the place apart.
